Sugar Free Orange Marmalade — A no-cook recipe made with chia seeds and stevia. Perfect for slathering on toast!
Hi-oh my interweb friends!
It seems like it’s been forever since we last didn’t see each other in person. Now I can talk to you whether I’m in last Monday’s pajamas or my Sunday best without you ever knowing.
..Except that is if you know me by now, and have figured out that last Monday’s pajamas are my Sunday best. I digress…
I do however have some exciting news in my little life journey, and can’t wait until it is finalized and can tell all youz guyzz! Hopefully a lot more of these kinda nights will be happening very soon is what I can tell ya.
In the meantime, I’ve been making new friends
And rekindling my love affair with Sunday morning pancakes. Complete with a chocolate pb orgy. I do my own kinda worshipin.
Not to mention constructing something new to smother together with my beloved peanut butter.
I religiously ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich every day after school my junior year of High School. Which in those days was about 90% strawberry jam with 10% pb. My how the tables have turned.
Now it’s about 98% peanut butter 2% some kind of abnormal jam like apple or fig butter on eggs. Not bread. Eggs. Just call me crazy already and get it over with. You’ll come around soon enough.
Orange marmalade is one of my favs actually. The chew of the orange zest. The tang of citrus. And the sickeningly sweet gel of corn syrup.
Since I’ve made my take on chia jam before, I thought why not dabble into the marmalade world! Since chia seeds take on the jelling factor, it allows you to use much less sugar than typical jams, or none at all!
- 1 large navel orange
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp stevia*
- 1/2 tbsp water
- Zest the entire orange, and reserve in a large jar.
- Peel orange, and place segments in blender or food processor.
- Add chia seeds, stevia, and water and blend on high for 30 seconds.
- Transfer mixture to jar with zest, stirring well.
- Store covered in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight before using.
*can substitute honey if preferred.
- Category: jam, spread

I know this looks more like orange poppy seed marmalade, but if you’re that visually inclined then you can always use white chia seeds instead. The marmalade isn’t overly sweet (since I got enough of that already, right? 😉 ) so feel free to adjust to your own tastes and preferences. Unless you decide to add about 1/2 cup of sugar, your own version will still have a lot less sugar than the usual types. Now get to ‘ladin’!
